Alcohol Use Disorder Identification Test (AUDIT).
The alcohol use disorder identification test is a 10 item questionnaire regarding participant drinking habits.
Items are scored on a 0-4 scale, with the total scale score calculated as a sum of the items.
Scores of 8 or greater have been proposed to indicate hazardous drinking, with scores of 12 or more in women, or 15 or more in men, proposed to indicate a potential alcohol use disorder.
